Ok… so I have not commanded a great deal of computer time in the last few days, and before I knew it I was halfway through this week… with the holiday coming up fast! I processed these photos this weekend and wanted to share some with you all though. So here are a few of the (probably) 200-300 that I took of this beautiful new favorite!
I have never put so much time, effort, and money into finding a single bird, so when I found her (?), it was very exciting. Once we had located one another, there were times throughout the hike where I wasn’t sure who was following whom. Every time I would move on, she would pop up nearby, sometimes hunting the grasshoppers on the path, sometimes preening, sometimes just watching. It was a surreal experience that I will never forget.
This is the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher that has been hanging out near the Shiloh boat ramp (?) just over the Volusia County border; at the north end of the MINWR, by the way.
(Hopefully these images aren’t too large. I shrunk them via PhotoShop and minimized them on the post, but they did take a moment to appear after I published the post. Let me know if you can’t view them.)
